With this second monograph in the catalogue, æon confirms its attachment to one of the principal representatives of spectral music in France and abroad. Tristan Murail, a major composer and former student of Messiaen’s who early on freed himself from serialism, explores the whole sound spectrum, which he recomposes using the new technologies. Blending both Nature as a source of inspiration and the tools of computer analysis as compositional means, the composer lies within the great French tradition of naturalist music going back to the 18th century. A way of returning to the natural model. The works for large orchestra brought together in this recording present an extensive panorama of the composer’s output between 1985 and 2007, haunted by his futuristic visions and dreamlike elsewheres.
